At just 19 years old, Grace Mitchell has already blazed quite a trail for herself—from a headlining gig at Lollapalooza this weekend to a supporting slot touring with Foster The People. With her full-length debut on the horizon, today V exclusively premieres the rising alt-rocker's effervescent new track "Capital Letters."

As much a glaring "fuck you" to naysayers as a proud hedonist proclamation, the new track is more than your standard indie rock anthem. Starting off with a lo-fi, disco beat that grows into a guitar-laden, bass-heavy wall of sound, Mitchell makes peace with her wrongs while claiming them entirely as her own: "Fuck it I'll just take it with me / If I know that I'll pay for it later."

Mitchell has said that the track "is about defiance and rebellion even if there are immediate consequences. This is a festival-ready jam for every libertine out there if the blazing chorus—"Hey / I know I'm making a big mistake / I wanna do it the hard way / I wanna say it in capital letters"— is any indication, and it couldn't possibly have come at a better time. If anything, it only makes us all the more impatient for the flame-haired rock star on the rise's forthcoming debut.

Listen to "Capital Letters," and don't miss out on Mitchell live; check out the tour dates on her website.
